Guest Autumn days

The talk seems to be that there are no jobs out there but RBS graduates have done amazingly well. Does anyone know the destinations of this years graduates from the other schools?

Thought it best to start a new thread!

Until published by school don't think I can divulge Elmhurst graduate destinations.

Does Elmhurst usually publish their student outcomes? I can't remember seeing them in previous years.

 

The RBS lists theirs in the end of year show programmes which makes them public knowledge but not as far as I can see on their website.

Please everyone, feel free to post here when they're available on the school websites, like we did in the previous thread.

But may I ask that we keep discussion about them to a minimum so that this thread is a useful point of reference for people.  Further discussion should happen in new threads.

 

Thanks

(Although this should probably be in a "news" section, I actually think it's of more interest to those who mainly read "Doing Dance" as you're using it to help when deciding where to apply. When I get a mo I'll put a link from News.)

 

I've done a bit of searching and found the following information (if you wish to discuss any particular schools it's worth searching for old threads, or starting a new one rather than starting a long discussion here about the training or merits of each school):

HAMMOND

 

Would take too much re-formatting and trying to find relevant information as there are only a few ballet positions, so here’s the link to their website:

http://www.thehammondschool.co.uk/news-events/destinations-and-achievements/

 

 

TRING SCHOOL

 

Can’t find any information – they have a big alumni page on their website but that could be students of any genre from any year

 

 

RAMBERT SCHOOL

 

Can’t find any specific information – they have an alumni page on their website but it’s quite general

 

 

BALLET WEST

 

Can’t find any information for about graduates

 

 

NORTHERN BALLET SCHOOL

 

Last graduate information on their website was from 2011 - someone needs to update it!!

Max Maslen did indeed go to Birmingham Royal Ballet but yes, he graduated in 2012.

 

Shame the connection with Northern Ballet seems to have been lost in the last few years, but nice to see some Central grads going to Scottish Ballet this year. :-)

Last year a couple of students from Elmhurst and one from Royal went to Northern Ballet, but noone this year.  I'm not sure they even had any new starters this year (although I know some who left, so perhaps there's been some down-sizing - discussion for another thread....)

 Natalia Butragueno to ENB,  Pascal Johnson to Scottish and Lloyd Petchey and Philip Tunstall to Serbia, all in past few months so the third years due to graduate in summer 2013 although some of these left during this year to take these contracts.

 

I found all this information in the news section of Tring Parks website.

This is true. And two have joined Serbian National Ballet earlier in the year as did another to English National Ballet.

If we are thinking of the same person, I think the ENB contract must have been temporary. She's no longer listed on ENB's website. :-(
